Rimmel Apocalips / Show Off Lip Lacquers Review

RML_product

I’ve been on a lip color kick for months and months with a complete and utter disregard of my wallet’s soft sad whispers of “noooooo stop you don’t need that.” My newest favorite addition to my collection are the Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquers, which I’ve been lusting after since they launched in the UK last year. They finally made their US debut in June of this year, but as the Show Off Lip Lacquers and because I am, on occasion, a self-indulgent fool, I ended up buying them off ASOS during a summer sale for their original name. YEAH I KNOW. Don’t worry, I’m judging me too.

Of the 14 space-themed shades, I picked up Luna, a neutral peach pink, and Big Bang, a blue-based red, both of which have already seen a lot of love from the beauty blogosphere. All the internet love makes this post questionable levels of helpfulness since so many people have already spoken about them, but I think they’re phenomenal and still worth sharing. Read More

Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation · Review

I recently picked up the Revlon Nearly Naked foundation after saying good bye to my faaaavorite fancy lady foundation, the Dior Diorskin Nude Hydrating Glow Foundation, and I’m so excited by how much I love the Revlon that I thought I’d do a review on it. Sometimes I like to pretend I’m a beauty blogger!! There are a ton of reviews online already, but hopefully someone with similar skin needs as mine might find it helpful in figuring out if this is right for them. Read More

Revlon Super Lustrous & Kissable Balm Stain · Review

In the last year, I SWAN-DIVED into the world of lip colors after a lifetime of avoiding them. I’ve always had a bit of a complex about my lips (even repeatedly writing the word LIPS is making me uncomfortable) because they’re frequently chapped, dry or peeling and so I stayed away from anything that would emphasize their existence on my face. But maybe it’s all part of the natural process of growing up, because the older I get the less I care to be bothered about certain insecurities. 【Insert motivational self-love poster here!!】 I recently picked up a few items to add to my growing lip color collection and I’ve been loving them so much that I wanted to share some swatches & reviews.

TokyoMilk Dark Lip Elixir · Review

I was in the market for a new lipbalm and I came across all of Margot Elena‘s products and couldn’t stop crying about how pretty and lovely all her packaging was – ESPECIALLY the TokyoMilk line ♥ㅁ♥ I wanted to try one of the Lip Elixir’s from the Femme Fatale collection, but I was wary about how heavily scented it would be and so, if you recall from my post with Jane, I was on search for TokyoMilk products in the city so I could smell-em-all. The search was moot, but I got it in my head that I MUST HAVE THIS and so I went ahead and fulfilled my shopping urges. I’ll admit it was 90% for the packaging ;x Read More
